Physical properties of the main asteroids of the belt, Ceres, Vesta and Pallas.

Asteroid Non-dimensional mass Semi-major axis (u.a) Eccentricity Inclination Lyapunov time τϕ (yr)

Ceres 4.7 × 10-10 2.8 0.076 11˚ 28 900
Vesta 1.35 × 10-10 2.4 0.09 14 282
Pallas 1.05 × 10-10 2.7 0.23 35˚ 6283

Notes. MS is the mass of the sun. The Lyapunov times are taken from Laskar et al. (2011b).
